New Delhi: A day ahead of the anniversary of Babri mosque demolition, two Muslim groups urged President Pranab Mukherjee to refer all the cases related to Babri Masjid-Ram Janmbhoomi dispute to the Supreme Court and demanded that the hearing be done in a time-bound manner.
Members of All India Babri Masjid Rebuilding Committee (AIBMRC) and All India Muslim Unity Front (AIMUF), who staged a protest here at Jantar Mantar today, said any decision taken by the apex court will be acceptable to the Muslim community.
The demonstrators demanded rebuilding of the mosque at the disputed site and later handed over memorandums addressed to President and Prime Minister at their respective offices.
The protesters said that by "demolishing the Babri Masjid in 1992, several organisations violated the constitution, judiciary, law and order and harmed the secular character of India on international level which can be regained only by rebuilding the mosque."
"We appeal you to refer all the disputes of Babri Masjid- Ram Janambhoomi to Supreme Court of India under Article 138-B of the Constitution for a time-bound and binding decision.
"Whatever the decision the Supreme Court delivers, whether it is in favour of Babri Masjid or Ram Temple will he acceptable to the Muslim community as we have full faith in Indian judiciary," the protesters said in the memorandum submitted to the PMO and President's Secretariat.
